When we decided to form a second Amplify team, Drew was a shoe in.
Drew LOVES music.
While this characteristic alone would make him perfect for the Amplify team, Drew isn’t simply a music fan. Aside from being incredible at the cello, he has a knack for recording songs in a way that accurately portrays the feelings of an artist. When an artist is passionate about a song, their emotions spill into the music and the listener is given a brief glimpse into who they truly are; a glimpse into their soul. Drew clearly thrives on this passion, working to capture it through tools of modern recording.
It is with this knowledge of Drew that we are proud to introduce you to our first monthly curated playlist. We asked Drew to select songs that demonstrate what he values most in music. Drew answered this prompt with a playlist of songs that share one element: passion.
As Drew has told us, it is apparent that each of these artists feels something when they perform this music. While these songs represent a massive range in genres, not one fails to deliver the heartfelt human connection we long for in music. This playlist will take us on a journey: from the heights of joy found between the driving beats of COIN’s Time Machine to the depths of a lover’s heart found in Avalanche by Drew Holcomb… with pauses for angst-filled cries of 90’s pop-punk.
We would love for you to embark on this musical adventure Drew has offered us. Join us in welcoming him to the Amplify family.
Thanks for listening.
